I specialize in treating trauma and the lasting impacts that it has on people.  If you have a certain set of symptoms as a result of an experience then it's called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The word ‘trauma’ is often misunderstood and as you read you will find that I can help to erase the effects of many types of experiences, even if you may not necessarily assign the word 'trauma' to them.  Read on to help sort out some thoughts and explore if I may be able to help with what's bringing you here, to this page, today. 

What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence-based, highly productive method of therapy that uses your brain’s natural healing process as the primary tool to treat traumatic and impactful experiences. It can bring quick and lasting relief to a variety of mental struggles and pains. EMDR was originally used to treat PTSD in war veterans and is now also used to alleviate the intrusive thoughts and feelings from other traumatic or upsetting experiences. You may be surprised  ... 

There are many misconceptions and stereotypes about what counseling is.  If you have never been to counseling before, I welcome you and would like to fill you in on what to expect.  If you have attended sessions in the past, therapists have different styles so mine may be different in some ways than what you have experienced so it may be helpful to check out.
